Maryland is undefeated at Byrd Stadium this year

Maryland is undefeated at Byrd Stadium this year

•While there isn’t a “must see” game this week the way there has been pretty much every Saturday this year, today should be very interesting. Every week it seems like there are upsets happening left and right. That was certainly the case last week as 7 teams in the Top 25

•Because it is happening right here in Baltimore I will pay close attention to the Navy-Notre Dame game. Last year when these two played, it ended up being a 3 overtime thriller with Navy coming out on top for the first time in 43 games. As usual, expect a lot of running from the Mids. If Navy can generate enough pressure on Irish QB Jimmy Clausen, I think they have a very good shot at winning this one. Notre Dame needs one more win to become bowl eligible. MY PREDICTION: NOTRE DAME

•A big game in College Park today at 3:30, the Terps host #16 North Carolina. Maryland is in a tight race with FSU and Wake for first place in their division of the ACC. If the Terps win today and both FSU and Wake lose, then they will take sole possession of first place in the Atlantic division. Here are a few numbers regarding the Terps at home: They are 5-0 this year, outscoring teams by a 153-82 margin. They’re also 3-0 against the Top 25. So that trend definitely favors Maryland this afternoon, but the game is not played on paper. UNC is a well coached team and they have a good shot at winning this one. MY PREDICTION: MARYLAND
